Memory Foam Rug Pads

Why Use a Memory Foam Rug Pad

If you're looking for supreme luxury with thick foam pads under your area rugs, one of our memory foam rug pads is the way to go. Just like memory foam carpet pads, our pads offer fantastic padding for rugs that don't need a slip resistant rug pad.

Made with the same Visco elastic memory foam that you find in mattresses, our memory foam padding is incredibly comfortable under your feet and safe for any floor type. The memory foam pads are slightly more expensive than some of our other rug pad options like a felt rug pad, but many people feel it's worth it because it offers the most comfort.

The Benefits of Our Memory Foam Pads for Rugs

Memory foam rug pads are ideal for anyone looking for fantastic rug padding and floor protection for their area rugs. A quality memory foam area rug pad will offer a plush experience in your house that will make your feet extremely happy.

Foam Padding for Floors

Our memory foam pad options offer next-level foam padding for floors. With maximum comfort and support, there’s a reason we named our Cloud Comfort rug pad after a cloud.

Water Resistant Foam Padding

Our most water resistant foam padding is our SpillTech rug pad, but all our memory foam rug pads offer some water resistance to protect your floors from spills and pet accidents and give you time to clean up the liquid before it hits the floors.

Improves Soundproofing Capacity

For two-level homes, apartments, or condos soundproofing floors can be a challenge. Our thick memory foam can help to absorb some of the noise traveling between floors.

Pressure Relief

When you step on our memory foam rug pads the foam pad absorbs and redistributes your body weight so each step feels cushioned and light. This can make a huge difference especially if you have any food or joint issues.

Floor Protection

Whether you have laminate flooring, hardwood flooring, or another type of hard surface floor, our memory foam rug pads will protect your floor and will never stain or discolor the floor surface.

Rug Protection

The thick padding between your floor and rug reduces friction so your rug won’t wear down as quickly.

Heat Insulation

Ever walked on cold marble or tile floors barefoot in the winter? It will suck the heat straight out of your feet. With your rug and thick foam padding, you’ll avoid losing as much heat through your floors.

Low VOC Content

Our Cloud Comfort rug pad uses natural minerals and soybean oils instead of petrol oils, so it has a very low VOC content and won’t give off any bad odors.

Awesome Rug Pad for Hard Floors and Babies

I purchased the thick version of this rug pad earlier this year after moving to a home with laminate hardwood flooring. I hesitated for a while due to the cost, but I have no regrets about my purchase. It has been perfect having this as my baby has learned to crawl and walk. My baby actually has some padding as he crawls, walks, and inevitably falls (or temper tantrums now). It has saved us from a lot of unnecessary bonks and resulting tears. Plus, this makes the floor comfortable enough that I can sit and lay to play on the ground. I love that this is made in the USA, and it's nice purchasing a product that a company can stand behind with a 10 year warranty. Thank you for providing a great product!

Get to Know Our Memory Foam Rug Pads

Whether you're looking for a cushioned rug pad or a water-resistant rug pad, we want to make sure you find exactly what you're looking for. Our two main options for memory foam flooring pads are our Cloud Comfort rug pad and our SpillTech rug pad.

Cloud Comfort Rug Pad

Our Cloud Comfort rug pad is made with 100% visco elastic memory foam, providing a dense layer of cushioning for those looking to truly maximize comfort. Just like a mattress cradles you as you sleep, this pad cradles your feet with every step.

We offer two different thicknesses for the Comfort Cloud rug pad: 1/4-inch and 7/16-inch. The thinner option will still provide plenty of carpet padding and comfort and can help avoid indents from heavy furniture or tripping hazards because of the lower profile. The thicker option is perfect for a large memory foam rug pad that you want to sit on more.



Just What My Rug Needed!

Sized perfectly, and provided the right amount of cushion under my feet. I actually wasn't sure about the rug I had purchased. With this rug pad underneath, I LOVE my rug.

SpillTech Rug Pad: Rebond Rug Pads

SpillTech combines recycled rebond rug pads with a spill-proof moisture barrier, providing ample cushioning while preventing spills from reaching your floors. The pad combines a 3/8" thick layer of urethane foam with Scotchgard’s Advanced Repel Technology. The perfect pet-proof rug pad!

This type of bonded foam is most similar to a memory foam carpet pad you might use with wall-to-wall carpet.



A Must-Have for Pet Households

This rug pad has certainly been put to the test by my two 65 pound dogs. The waterproof properties bring me peace of mind knowing that I don’t have to worry about accidents seeping through the rug pad. I clean up the mess with a portable rug cleaner and bring in the experts every so often to deep clean the rugs. Their pad offers good cushion- I can sit comfortable on the living room floor to play with my daughter. I’ve since added this product to my dining room and will put one in the playroom as well.

When Not to Get a Memory Foam Rug Pad?

If you need padding for a smaller rug like a hallway rug or bath mat. With smaller or lighter rugs, they often need a non-slip pad to act as a rug gripper and prevent the rug from moving or bunching up on a hard floor.

As a general rule for area rug sizes, if your area rug measures 8x10 or larger, you'll want to maximize cushioning over grip meaning a memory foam rug pad would work well. Have a 10x14 rug? A memory foam rug pad is right for you.

A 6x9 rug? You may want to consider one of our area rug pad options that combine grip and cushion, like one of our felt and rubber rug pads. These pads are also fully safe for most floors including hardwood flooring.

Can You Use Our Memory Foam Rug Pads as Memory Foam Carpet Pads?

We don’t recommend using our memory foam rug pads for wall-to-wall carpet because carpet padding attaches directly to the carpet while rug padding works on its own.

The Best Memory Foam Area Rug Pad by Rug Size and Room

Different rug sizes and rooms have different needs when it comes to rug pads, so we’re here to help you find the right rug pad to fit your needs.

Can You Use Memory Foam Rug Padding for Small Rugs and Runners? (4x6 Rugs and Smaller)

While some of our customers have had good results with our memory foam rug pads on runners or smaller mats in kitchens, hallways, and bathrooms, we don’t recommend using them because they do not have any slip resistance.

With smaller rugs, you will likely need some non slip grip for your rug pad, meaning our memory foam won’t be the right choice. Instead, we recommend checking out our non skid rug pad collection.

The Best Memory Foam Rug Pad 5x8, 6x9, 7x10

When looking for a medium memory foam pad like a memory foam rug pad 5x8 size, you’ll want to consider whether or not you need a non slip rug pad. Often with this size, we recommend choosing a pad with some grip like our Superior Lock rug pad because it combines grippy natural rubber with cushioned felt and comes in the same thicknesses as our memory foam (1/4" and 7/16”).

If your rug is heavy and has furniture to anchor it in place, you may not need extra grip. In this case, our thinner Cloud Comfort rug pad might be a good fit to offer an extra soft feel without posing a tripping hazard.


The Best Thick Foam Pads for a Large or XL Memory Foam Area Rug 8x10, 10x13, 12x15, or Larger

If you’re looking for a memory foam area rug pad for large rugs like a memory foam area rug 8x10 pad, any of our memory foam pads would be fantastic options. All of these pads offer spill protection for the large areas and offer extreme comfort.

If you have pets or kids that spill liquids often, we’d recommend our waterproof foam pad, the SpillTech rug pad. Otherwise, either of our Cloud Comfort rug pad thicknesses would be perfect for your rug, it’ll just depend on your personal preference with padding.

For more padding, go with the thicker, 7/16” Cloud Comfort. For a lower profile, go with the thinner, 1/4" Cloud Comfort.

The Best Memory Foam Rugs for Bedroom Comfort

When you get out of bed and your feet hit the floor, you want them to feel cushioned and warm, right? That’s why you’d want memory foam rugs for bedroom comfort.

If you have a large area rug that goes under your bed, our 1/4" thick Cloud Comfort would be an excellent choice to put under your rug because it’s not so thick that you’ll get intense dents from the heavy bed, but you’ll still get fantastic pressure relief for your feet right out of bed.

The Best Memory Foam Living Room Rug Pad

The living room is one of the most common places we recommend using a memory foam rug pad because it’s the #1 place you’ll want to feel comfy and cozy with friends and family around.

If you have kids or like to spend lots of time sitting on the floor, then a memory foam living room rug pad is a great investment. Our thick 7/16” Cloud Comfort rug pad is on the pricier side, but with the price comes ultimate luxury for sitting and spending time on. It also offers great floor protection for toddlers and babies still learning to walk.

If you have pets that you’re still house training, our SpillTech rug pad is the one for you with it’s 100% water resistant layer to protect your floors

Is Memory Foam Safe for All Floor Types?

Our memory foam rug pads are safe for all floor types and finishes so you can rest easy knowing your floors are well protected. Whether you have hardwood floors, laminate floors, tile, marble, or luxury vinyl planks, your floors will be safe from damage as long as you follow your flooring manufacturer’s instructions for proper curing times.
